JERUSALEM (AP) — President-elect Donald Trump’s son-in-law co-directs a family foundation that has donated tens of thousands of dollars to Jewish settlement organizations in the West Bank, according to tax records.

Trump has said Jared Kushner, who serves as a close adviser, could help negotiate a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians. The donations by Kushner’s parents’ foundation could complicate his ability to be an impartial broker.

The Israeli daily Haaretz on Monday first reported the donations by the family foundation, which Kushner and his siblings direct with their parents.

The U.S. and most of the international community consider settlements in the West Bank and east Jerusalem to be illegal or illegitimate and obstacles to peace. The Palestinians seek both territories, captured by Israel in the 1967 Mideast war, for their hoped-for state.

But Trump has signaled he may alter decades of U.S. policy. The Republican Party’s platform rejected “the false notion” that Israel is an occupier, and an adviser to Trump on Israel affairs has said Trump does not perceive settlements, home to roughly 600,000 Israelis, to be an impediment to peace.

According to tax records, the Charles and Seryl Kushner Foundation donated at least $38,000 between 2011 and 2013 to the American Friends of Bet El Yeshiva, the fundraising arm of a Jewish seminary in Beit El, a West Bank settlement.

  1. 38 000 K is a meagre donation in comparison to other philanthropists. But I believe TRUMP and his ENTOURAGE are on the RIGHT SIDE of TRUTH and JUSTICE, and AMERICA will prevail for at least another 8 years, until the next MUSLIM TRAITOR comes into power.

    1. Much more needs to be done, it can’t rest with one man, look at Reagan, the opposition he faced and how quickly they overturned his freedom based policies once he left office, starting with BushSr.
